In 2012, the world eats herself. In 2013, we are forced to leave our planet for future homes on Mars.  Future homes are safe, clean spaces for living, providing a mental oasis for the new denizens of Mars.  Life outside the future home is austere but life inside is psychological rich!  Night Gallery’s future home presents the work of four post-apocalyptic artists: Samara Golden, Alika Cooper, Peter Harkawik and Paul Waddell.  Thanks to these artists, the 2013 future home comes outfitted with all the amenities a futur-sidic person could desire.  Amenities include a silver tombstone, nude bodies in skin-tight astronaut suits, a photographic manual for psycho-cosmic love making and an array of alien creatures.

In addition to presenting works by these four artists, Night Gallery will also host a post-human performance by Mark Verabioff as he looks down from space and recalls what homes on Earth used to be: Little Boxes.

What can this document be, my friends? A missive from the future? Notes from a screenplay pitch, found crumpled on the floor at Starbucks? Nay. This is a post-Greenbergian, post-Fordian postcard from the astro-suited vixens and victors at Night Gallery.

“But I didn’t get this!  I’m not on Night Gallery’s list!,” you cry in despair, “Help me!”

You need to try harder.
